Product Overview

A tried and true design with added features and a smaller size

Perko’s compact medium duty battery disconnect and selector switches are a smaller version of their versatile medium duty switches. They pack all of the features that we’ve come to love of the Perko medium duty switches into a third less space and added some features to make them more user friendly. A new switching configuration has an easy to grip knob and requires only a 90° turn to make all of the selections. Perko also increased its rating to carry 315 amperes. The bolt pattern is shared with the larger medium duty switch, so changing them out is easy. Because they are ignition protected, these selectors and disconnects can be installed almost anywhere, including engine rooms of gasoline powered boats. Four removable panels provide easy access for battery cables.
